  • According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the victim was out with his male friend on Monday night at an Embakasi club when they met with the woman, identified as Virginia Wangui Thiga, and her female friend.
  • At around 4 am on Tuesday, the four left the club for a nearby guest house where moments later the victim’s male friend left, leaving him with the two ladies.

Detectives have arrested a 30-year-old woman who is alleged to have drugged and robbed a man of Ksh.1 million.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the victim was out with his male friend on Monday night at an Embakasi club when they met with the woman, identified as Virginia Wangui Thiga, and her female friend.

The two invited Virginia and her friend to share drinks with them.

“Before the unfortunate incident, the man together with a male friend were enjoying their drinks at the popular joint, when all of a sudden two light-skinned ladies stepped into the bar. 

The men beckoned them to join their table but the beauties were hesitant and appeared not interested in their vibe,” said the DCI.

“However, after some few minutes, they changed their minds, much to the delight of the two men and joined their table.” 

At around 4 am on Tuesday, the four left the club for a nearby guest house where moments later the victim’s male friend left, leaving him with the two ladies.

In details recounted later after regaining consciousness at a city hospital, the man told police he was served pieces of chicken by the ladies who then fled with his mobile phone, ATM and identity card.

Even worse, the man realized that Ksh.1 million had been withdrawn from his mobile and bank accounts.

Virginia, who was arrested in Kasarani, is currently in police custody awaiting arraignment on Tuesday as investigations into the matter continue.

“The suspect shall be arraigned in court today to answer to charges of stealing contrary to section 268 as read with section 275 of the penal code,” said the DCI.
